About Health Sciences North Foundation

Health Sciences North Foundation is the fundraising arm of Health Sciences North. It is governed by a volunteer board of directors who are dedicated to ensuring the very best health care for the people of Northeast Ontario.

We accept, manage and disburse funds for improvements in patient care and specialized equipment, as well as teaching and research.

Every dollar you give stays right here in the community. HSN Foundation will work with you to ensure your donation has the biggest impact in patient care as possible.

Excellence in health care is driven by dedicated staff and donors. Your support of the Foundation helps ensure the hospital will be ready for you and your loved ones when you need it the most.

Our History

In 1996 two hospital foundations existed in Sudbury: the Laurentian Hospital Foundation and the Sudbury Memorial Hospital Foundation. In 1998, they merged together to form the Sudbury Regional Hospital Foundation (SRHF).

Over the years the SRHF raised funds for much needed medical equipment for the hospital such as stretchers, a catheterization lab, diagnostic equipment and critical care beds. The Foundation also raised funds for the construction of our one-site hospital in cooperation with the Northern Cancer Foundation through the Heart & Soul capital campaign.

On November 1, 2011 the Sudbury Regional Hospital officially changed its name to Health Sciences North. As its fundraising partner, the Sudbury Regional Hospital Foundation changed its name to Health Sciences North Foundation.
